The Magic of Love Teams: Some of the Iconic Couples of Philippine Cinema in its Golden years

11:16:00 PM

 

Have you ever watched the films in the golden years of Philippine cinema? Well, if you're fond of watching classic movies, it was in that era where love teams started. That's for the Philippine movie industry. 

From the 1950s, 60s, 70s, it was a magical time for Philippine cinema, and love teams were at the forefront of it all. Each pair had its unique chemistry and charm that captivated audiences. From the comedic timing of "DolphiDa" to the undeniable chemistry of "FPJ - Susan," these love teams brought a special kind of magic to the big screen.

One of the most notable things about these love teams was that they were able to bring their on-screen romance to real life. Perhaps that the catch of this love team that they were as if for real. Well in fact, many of these pairs had real-life romances that only added to the chemistry they had on screen. Their love stories were not only entertaining but also inspiring, making them even more beloved by audiences.

  • One of the famous love teams of the 1950s-1960s was "Dolphy- Nida," consisting of Dolphy and Nida Blanca. Their comedic timing and on-screen chemistry had audiences in stitches. They starred in several films together, and their popularity continued to grow.

  • "Eddie-Amalia" was another iconic love team of the 1960s, consisting of Eddie Garcia and Amalia Fuentes. They had strong chemistry and starred in several films together. Their love story on-screen was just as captivating as their real-life romance.

  • "Romeo-Gloria" was another popular love team of the 1960s, consisting of Romeo Vasquez and Gloria Romero. They had great on-screen chemistry and starred in several films together. They were considered one of the most iconic love teams of all time.

  • "Susan-FPJ" and "Luis-Susan" were also poular love teams of the 1960s, consisting of Susan Roces and Fernando Poe Jr and Luis Gonzales respectively. They had undeniable chemistry and starred in several films together.

  • The love team of "Tita-Pancho," Tita Duran and Pancho Magalona, not only on screen but went to marrying each other. One thing that jive them both is dancing. They're always a pair when it comes to dancing. What's interesting with this couple is that their love team crosses beyond the screen that bore one of the greatest Pinoy rapper. 
As the years passed, these love teams have become a part of Philippine entertainment history. They have set the bar high for future generations of actors and have left a lasting legacy that will be remembered for years to come. These love teams will always hold a special place in the hearts of Filipino audiences and will continue to be celebrated as icons of Philippine cinema.

To sum it all up, the love teams of the 1960s were a defining moment in Philippine entertainment history. Their chemistry, romance, and iconic performances will always be remembered and cherished by fans. They have set the bar high for future generations of actors and have left a lasting legacy that will be remembered for years to come.

Cinema One Originals Marks It's 15 Years With Brave Cinematic Experiences and Will Run From November 7 to 17

8:25:00 PM

An interesting news in the entertainment industry as one of your favorite go-to films Cinema One Originals, on its fifteenth year, will loudly and proudly declare what it’s stood for all these years, originality in all its permutations, and challenging old and new audiences if they’re ready for the Cinema One Originals Experience—an experience that goes beyond cinema, beyond cinephilia, beyond entertainment.

All these years, the Cinema One Originals mandate has been to give filmmakers, first-timers and otherwise, a platform to fully express their visions. This year, eight original narrative features get P3 million worth of grant each. There are four first time filmmakers, three previous Cinema One Originals alumni, and one director making her second feature and her Cinema One Originals debut.


Diverse as the four first-time filmmakers’ visions are, they find common ground in the way they invert their genres, and subgenres, of choice: a bildungsroman, a noir, a gothic horror, and a resurrection rom-com.

 
J.E. Tiglao makes his feature debut with “Metamorphosis” which stars Gold Aceron, Iana Bernardez, Ivan Padilla, Ricky Davao, and Yayo Aguila in a coming-of-age drama about intersexuality that’s as wistful as it is provocative. Dustin Celestino reverses the wrong time/wrong place dynamics of noir with a little help from a comet in “Utopia,” a blackly comic riff on the genre starring Enzo Pineda, Joem Bascon, and Aaron Villaflor. Eve Baswel’s “Tia Madre” is a gothic horror featuring Cherie Gil and Jana Agoncillo in which a young girl starts to suspect her mother has been changed into something not quite herself and perhaps not quite human either. Nigel Santos’ “Yours Truly, Shirley” casts Regine Velasquez as a widow who believes a young pop star (Rayt Carreon) is the reincarnation of her late husband.

Returning to Cinema One Originals are Victor Villanueva and Kevin Dayrit, who made their feature film debuts with Cinema One Originals.


 
Victor’s resumes his fascination with the intertwining of rom-com tropes with supernatural tinges that made “My Paranormal Romance” a quirky treat with “Lucid”, in which Alessandra De Rossi plays a lucid dreamer whose waking life and dream life start to blur when she meets JM De Guzman. Kevin, whose “Catnip” was the multi-awarded darling of its year takes on vampirism, necrophilia, the drug wars and rom-coms in “O” which stars Anna Luna, Lauren Young, and Jasmine Curtis-Smith.

Giancarlo Abrahan whose second feature was the Best Picture-winning Cinema One Original “Paki” returns with “Sila Sila”, which stars Gio Gahol and Topper Fabregas and which he describes as an LGBT ghosting story and which finds him taking another look at the interstitial dynamics of yet another extended family, a group of friends nursing consensual emotional traumas.


 
Denise O Hara makes her Cinema One Originals debut and her second feature with “Tayo Muna Habang Hindi Pa Tayo” a rom-com inversion with JC Santos and Jane Oineza, about the underside of trauma that even the truest of loves have.

Cinema One Originals has been producing breakthrough films with thought-provoking contents for the Filipino audience for 15 years. This year’s celebration will be held in line with the 100th anniversary of the Philippine Cinema and the 25th anniversary of leading cable channel Cinema One.


 
Fresh, cool, vibrant, inclusive, brave, original. The 15th Cinema One Originals runs from November 7 to 17 at Trinoma, Glorietta, Ayala Manila Bay, Gateway, and Powerplant Makati. There will also be screenings at Vista Cinemas in Iloilo and Evia Lifestyle and in Cinema Centenario, Cinema ‘76, Black Maria, UP Cine Adarna, and FDCP Cinematheque Manila.

What does "foolish" means?

Just When The Force Awakens At Gateway Cinema Traffic Hits Manila, Hard

7:42:00 AM

When The Force Awakens at Gateway Mall's cinema with the seventh installment of the Star Wars series, Manila got hit by heavy traffic... and it's hard. And Toto experienced that right before going to see the launching of this new cinema with astonishing Dolby Atmos technology. It was just great that the Force was much stronger in making me watch the movie.

Dolby Atmos is not new to me because I have featured it on www.grabtechdude.net but what's interesting is that the place is much nearer. So for those who are wondering how does this Dolby Atmos differs, here are some of the facts and things they say about it.

Just right before Holloween here's another story on the big screen that will let you feel terrified and jumped off your seats. It is the chilling and eerie setting that will definitely give you a spine tingling sensation with "Resureksyon".

PressCon of the PRAYBEYT BENJAMIN

4:57:00 AM

Last September 28, 2011, after the surging winds and rain of Typhoon Pedring, we were able to attend the Press Conference of Vice Ganda’s newest and up-coming movie entitled PRAYBEYT BENJAMIN. The theme of the press conference was green and army.


It was a star studded press conference and also well formed cast by generation. This is what we have noticed there were the generation of the bachelor - Kean Cipriano and Carlos Agassi, the generation of bachelorette - Vice Ganda, the generation of young parents - Nikki Valdez and DJ Durano, the generation of matured parents - Malou De Guzman, and the last generation, the generation of the senior citizen – the honorable Director Eddie Garcia. I think Direk Wenn have created a cast of great actors of all generations to bring one heck of a good movie.


During the press conference there were many parts of the movie that were given emphasis. One of them is the acceptance issue not only in the gender issue but more precisely as an individual. There were also admission, like in the famous phrase “the truth shall set you free” and I think those who have admitted some events in their life surely set themselves free. So mainly the movie is not just laughs but it features pigments of reality, reality that is actually happening in our society.

As we all know Vice Ganda has become a very popular gay icon, from being a stand-up comedian up to becoming a product endorser, a host and a performer. Vice Ganda has been shining very bright and now it will shine much brighter with his latest upcoming movie “PRAYBEYT BEJAMIN”.


 In this movie Vice plays the role of Bejamin Santos whose family has a long tradition of serving in the military. In fact, the movie’s stunning opening traces the roots of the Santos’ military service, from the days of Lapu-lapu and the Katipunan, up to the current times.

Conflict ensues when Lolo Benjamin which was played by Eddie Garcia fins out that his grandson (Vice) cannot continue the tradition because he is gay.

But when Lolo Benjamin is captured by terrorists, the grandson enters the military and musters all his masculine strength to save his dear grandfather, and the rest of the war-torn country as well.


Helping Praybeyt Benjamin in his quest are the member of a misfit platoon played by, among others, Derek Ramsay, DJ Durano, Vandolph, Jimmy Santos, Eddie Garcia, Dennis Padilla, Carlos Agassi, malouDe Guzman, Tutti Caringal, Kean Cipriano and Nikki Valdez.

This movie is the result of Vice’s good collaboration with the blockbuster director Wenn Deramas.


Be thrilled and be awed by Vice Ganda when “PRAYBEYT BENJAMIN’ opens in theaters nationwide on Oct. 12!
